I had migraines for years, but following fires advice above, I documented them & strangely enough they were always on Sundays. Debilitating, knock me down, all I want to do is whimper & stay in a dark room for the day, drinking nothing but water.
I thought it was late night gaming, or late night drinking, or some thing, but it alluded me for years.
Then I was reading an article about Caffeine withdrawal and it totally clicked. I drink coffee every day Mon-Fri, but then I don’t drink on the weekends sometimes because I would sleep in and wouldn’t need it.
I decided that these were bad enough that I had two choices:
- Drink coffee all the time, and be essentially addicted to it.
- Switch to Decaf
i switched to Decaf & in rare instances (travelling to Costa Rica or India where Decaf isn’t in their vocabulary) where I have to drink normal coffee, I have to ween myself by going half-n-half for a few days to drop it again.
Hopefully this PSA helps someone else "click’ with a caffeine withdrawal and help them!
